my lyricsbox
I will change, I will change
I swear, just tell me what to do
Just tell me who to be
And I'll be who you want me to
Pretend I don't exist
You won't know I'm in the room
I'll be the ghost of something
That used to mean something to you

This beaten up heart
Is lost and confused
I wish that my younger self was here
He'd know just what to do
Boy could he talk
Well he'd know just what to say
Moving up is moving on from where you came
Stop me if I'm boring you
I'm painfully aware
That you've got better ways to waste your time, time, time

I will change, I will change
I swear, just tell me what to do
Just tell me who to be
And I'll be who you want me to
Pretend I don't exist
You won't know I'm in the room
I'll be the ghost of something
That used to mean something to you

Say this isn't real
Say this was a joke
Say there's still space for me in bed
'Cause I can't live alone
Oh pitiful me, I'll do anything you say
I'd soon as suffocate with you than stay away
And I knew all this years ago
But couldn't take the hint
You match my overcompensation
With your own ambivalence

I will change, I will change
I swear, just tell me what to do
Just tell me who to be
And I'll be who you want me to
Pretend I don't exist
You won't know I'm in the room
I'll be the ghost of something
That used to mean something to you

When I got the call
I was on the road
Three weeks in Europe 'til I got home
So what would make you stay
I'll build a mountain I'll change my name
I don't have to breathe if all my air gets in your way

I will change, I will change
I swear, just tell me what to do
Just tell me who to be
And I'll be who you want me to
Pretend I don't exist
You won't know I'm in the room
I'll be the ghost of something
That used to mean something to you
That should've meant something to you
This song is from the album "Vacancy".
